Gypsy and Traveller Site Engagement Event in Machynlleth
An information and engagement event took place at Machynlleth Bowling Club on Monday 28 November 2016 from 2pm until 6pm.
Officers from the council were on hand to give information and to answer any queries and receive comments from members of the public on a proposed permanent gypsy and traveller site in the Machynlleth area.
The following information was available at the event and may be of interest to anyone who wasn't able to attend.
A viability study will be conducted shortly on this option in parallel with submitting a planning application on our preferred site.
Information about the legislative requirements around developing sites for gypsy/travellers can be found here.
Information can also be found in the Council's Local Development Plan
A number of conversations and comments were logged by the officers and a summary feedback document responding to these is available below. This includes comments made about an alternative site - described locally as the Old Saw Mill, Forge Road.
